FLIP-Peru My Experience so far…

By Jenny San Juan

It’s been 5 days already in Peru. We spent 2 nights in Lima and then came to Chiclayo, another city in Peru where we are going to work helping develop premises, GMPs, SOPs for a educational food processing plant. People here are so warm, polite, welcome, and sweet. Undoubtedly, this is a great experience to get to know Peruvian culture and understand that we have more similarities than differences.

The professors of the IESTP Institute are so professional and very warm facilitators.

We did not imagine the scope that Centennial College had in Peru. I feel very proud of being a Centennial College student as I myself witnessed how hard Centennial College have worked and continue to work towards helping building a more focused and efficient education system based on the local community’s needs. Even more inspirational is to know that Centennial College participation in this type of projects had inspired other local and international institutions and organizations to take part on this project. The outcome? Well, more young local people with less resources, and otherwise not able to access superior education, are now on their way to college and building a professional career that will enhance their lives and their community in countless ways, and you can feel it when they look at us with grateful faces for us being here.

What an amazing experience!
